Its like i lost my FREEDOM.....
I am 38 and have had ra for 3 years, but had it much longer just never put two and two together, worked through the pain.
My ankles and feet are the worst now...my feet hurt sinice I was 22 but was wearing steel toed boots and always on my feet....I've been dealing with the pain for many years, its almost normal for me...then one day I woke up and was stiff all over, felt like I was hit with soap in a sock.
It's like I lost my freedom...cant do nothing without being tired after 10 mins...
I hate RA....its the worst thing knowing u cant work, play,walk, etc....with out feeling like you played 4 quarters of football with no pads.
I have been on the common meds...nothing really working...meth-o..worked the most but my liver was starting to fail...so much for that....tried orinica....got sick as a dog...got three treatments...1st good..2nd bad...3rd..no more..dizzy,puking,list goes on.
Mad that i got the short straw and getting this crap.
Went from pulling $3300. in a month to $1250. on disability( which I had got in one try..all the stories on going to court and fighting to get it. I luck out in this case) and sitting at home being board,and feeling like "WHY ME" ? ...
ANYONE FEELING LIKE THIS TOO ?
